, the man who served as secretary for bill clinton. robert reich. and grover norquist, president of americans for tax reform. we're coming right back. >>> welcome back. something that very possibly could come up tonight is governor romney floating the idea of capping tax deductions at $17,000. would that effectively be a tax increase? and would it work to bring down the deficit? with us now robert reich who served as labor secretary under bill clinton and grover nor qui quist. >> he's made that commitment as has paul ryan and certainly the vast majority of republicans in the house. which is a commitment not to raise overall taxes. romney's committed to cutting all tax rates at least 20%. ryan and the house republicans want to go to a top rate of 25% corporate and individual. romney's made it clear. any changes are in the context of keeping overall taxes from going up and making sure the middle class doesn't get hit request higher taxes. it's not a tax increase, he's made that clear. >> mr. secretary, a lot of discussion about whether or not the wealthy or the middle class familie

yesterday the israeli prime minister met with secretary of state hillary clinton. the u.s. position has remained the same though. the united states saying that it is not drawing any red lines. secretary clinton saying we are not setting any deadline. she also said the sanctions seem to be having an effect. martha, again worth noting, one israeli official speaking in jerusalem is fearful that the iranians may take some comfort in the u.s. position and may use the u.s. position to buy more time, possibly to build a nuclear bomb. martha? martha: that is troublesome. also syria, of course is such a part of this whole die namic. that is on the agenda at the u.n. what do we expect there? >> reporter: that's right. there will be a meeting today sort of on the sidelines of the general assembly. it will be hosted by secretary of state hillary clinton. it is a meeting of the friends of syria. it will be attended by ministers of some 20 countries. the purpose of this meeting essentially to show support for the syrian opposition and to address the humanitarian concerns. the risch shan foreign minis

," has been lauded by fortune magazine, tom friedman of the times, elie wiesel and bill clinton, who wrote your forward. congratulations on all of that. > > thank you bill. > > it used to be, "just get it done, i don't care how you do it" was the axiom for how business operated? why is that no longer the case? > > when that was the axiom, we were all watching "the godfather:" "it's not personal, it's just business." we can go to funerals and hear that he was a jerk at work, a ruthless negotiator, but a loving husband and a caring father. if business operates in a separate sphere, then "just get it done, just do it, just to it now, i don't care how," is actually a rational strategy. that's all become too big to fail. the world has fused. it's gone from connected to interconnected to interdependent, where we rise and fall together, then how we relate to each other, how we create deep loyalty, how we engender trust, how we treat people, how we show respect, how we behave, matters more than ever in ways it never has before, and frankly has become the source of competitive advantage. that
. the flexibility that was felt to years ago under bush and clinton, we no longer have that cushion of our own prosperity. the battling has gone worse. absolutely. >> there will be some who point out this is still an energetic place. the energy does not come from government. it might come from the lack of it. america may be forced to find out in the years ahead. >> the british prime minister david cameron was in new york this week to reaffirm his government's goal to spend with their plans & on foreign aid. if all goes to plan, the u.k. will hit the -- to spend 0.7% on foreign aid. back home, there are plenty of politicians to think that's spending so much another country's problems at a time when the u.k. is in recession is madness. emily spoke to david cameron's former speechwriter and the executive director of an action group co-founded by the musician bono. >> whenever in the department is getting cut, is this unjustifiable? >> i do not think it is. it is affordable and the figure you did not hear and which the british public years, it cost just over a penny on each pound of revenue. a pen
four years, given what he was handed in this, when you heard bill clinton say that, bill clinton has not said that before. >> i could have done better. you could have done better. i think anybody who wasn't ideologically driven could have done better. >> what would you have done? >> sorry? >> the meaningful steps. >> what wouldn't you have done. >> we need jobs so therefore -- and we need exports so therefore the first thing you do is have the nlrb attack the number one exporter in the country on really preposterous grounds, then you in effect start yelling at business and threatening business and then you get on the tv and talk about las vegas and all of a sudden the hotel business dies. i mean, the answer is that we need leadership, not criticism. we need encouragement not discouragement and until that scenario changes i think the united states is quote/unquote, i hate to use this word, in a malaise. >> is that a function of new laws and legislation or a function of rhetoric? >> first of all it's both, okay, in other words, we hope that it's new laws. the reality is, it isn't new l

, and that makes it different this time because it's a lot of people still say -- you heard bill clinton, he put it in -- it's almost emblazoned now. >> four years ago, it deid feel different. >> now we are hearing that no one could have done better in job growth and that perception was supposedly different. we had people come in here that were thinking '80 was even worse. >> the new standard. we failed so this is good. >> the one thing that is helping the president is the rebound in home prices and the fact that i think -- because actually consumer sentiment is on the rise in the last couple of months. and i think a lot of that is that people are reading that home prices are getting better, they feel there's a turn in that market. and i think that's playing it, as well. the unemployment rate is still stubbornly high, but people don't feel all that bad and i think that's one of the reasons the stock market is doing well. >> the question is how many people are participating. >> front page article in the journal this morning is that despite the fact that we're sitting at a four year cycle high, we
, hillary clinton, rudy giuliani. this is the type of guy john thain is. liz: you know what he got in the mail, their portraits off the wall from the boardroom. why is that necessary? >> why did he do that? liz: the seagram's people did that. and then they got rid of it. this is inside hollywood. they did. removing company history. that was huge history. charlie: that was one of the iconic moments in finance. remember, terrace attack new york city, basically take down the world trade center, destroyed the communications. verizon has its communication hub there. it is all down. down for a week. what does grosso do, he brings it back. liz: he is a relic. charlie: he did a great job. obviously, getting people, the tech people, involved. liz: puts the pictures back. charlie: duncan -- liz: where were they, in the basement? charlie: it was an urban legend. i checked today, it is not true. it has bounced around the floor of the new york stock exchange that thain erase or photoshop grosso's face and then put that 917 picture back. i am not believing that one. he did take down that picture
for smoking a cigar? didn't jfk smoke? of course clinton, a very famous cigar smoker and all it implications there. and what about winston churchill, without his cigar, the icon wouldn't be quite the same. it's unfortunate that now you can't even smoke a cigar this public if you're a public figure. next you'll be saying the king of spain can't go elephant shooting. i don't know what the world's come to. >> should he go elephant shooting? >> probably not. >> no, he shouldn't, but he got caught doing that earlier this year. >> that's the point of the modern world. came back from a football match and the press wrote up the amount of money they spent on the lunch on his private jet. and the food bills and everything. you get called out for everything. >> yes. there was a story in the american newspapers yesterday about a new book about the presidential monarchy in america. and how many multiples of expense we spend on on our president in a year versus the british spending on their royal family. and i think it's quadruple. so it's a tough time in a period of austerity to be a public figure. >> no
had when bill clinton was president, when we created 23 million new jobs, went from deficit to surplus, and created a whole lot of millionaires to boot. and the reason this is important is because by doing that we can not only reduce the deficit, we can not only encourage job growth through small businesses but we're also able to make the investments that are necessary in education or in energy. and we do have a difference, though, when it comes to definitions of small business. now, under my plan 97% of small businesses would not see their income taxes go up. governor romney says, well, those top 3%, they're the job creators, they'd be burdened. but under governor romney's definition there are a whole bunch of millionaires and billionaires who are small businesses. donald trum subpoena a small business. i know donald trump doesn't like to think of himself as small anything. but that's how you define small businesses if you're getting business income. and that kind of approach i believe will not grow our economy because the only way to pay for it without either burdening the middle cla
,000 a year, that we should go back to the race we had when bill clinton was president, when we created 22 million jobs, what from deficit to surplus and created a whole created a lot of millionaires to boot. the reason this is important is because they doing that we can not only reduce the deficit. we can not only encourage job growth of small businesses, but were also to make investments necessary in education or in energy. and we do have a difference when it comes to definitions of small business. under my plan, 97% of small businesses would not see their income taxes go up. governor romney says well, those top 3% of the job creators they burdened. under governor romney's definition, as a whole bunch of millionaires and billionaires who are small-business. donald trump is a small business. i know donald trump doesn't like to think of himself as small anything, but that is how you define small businesses after getting small-business income. that kind of approach i believe will not grow our economy because the only way to pay for without either burdening the middle-class or blowing up our
, they built the repeal. the repeal, for those of you that don't know, was signed by bill clinton as president, helping to deregulate. what did we have? the taxes on the rich were discontinued. the regulations were discontinued. what is it that we saw. we saw that by not changing the organization of capitalist enterprises, we left in place people would be incentives and resources to do everything they are going to achieve in the depression. it is sort of like winning a war, but leaving the other army in place with all of its armaments. knowing that they have a lot of resentments about how it ended up. they might, you know, use their weapons to try again. if you leave in place a corporate capitalist structure, a small group of major shareholders who own the shares in their hands, they therefore select the board of directors and and remember what a board of directors doesn't every corporation? it decides what you produce, however pursuits, were to produce, and what to do with the profits. were americans, it is a fundamental and moral political issue. here we are in a country, after all, which cl
. that is not going to happen. one of the main reasons record surpluses under bill clinton were turned into record deficits under george bush is we put two wars and two tax cut on a credit card and governor romney want another $5 trillion in tax cuts? not i have anything to say about it. that won't happen. we are not going to let this country fall backward. not with so much at stake. we have got to move forward. we need to invest in small business and manufacturers who create jobs in the united states. we need to recruit 100,000 math and science teachers and two million workers at community college and bring down the cost of college tuition. connell: president obama live in the campaign rally in fairfax, virginia with his first reaction to the drop in unemployment rate talking about the five million jobs he says have been created under his watch and now going into campaign arguments we are likely to hear. dagen: that is your headline if running for reelection. unemployment rate at the lowest level since he took office. back to where it was in january of 2009. on the other side from mitt romney lat
. otherwise i can't explain why hillary clinton was and they guessed that sunday. she is secretary of state and has the responsibility and yet she was completely invisible. cheryl: a big question here. if it wasn't susan rice as secretary of state who would be? >> i am not sure there are any good candidate in obama's administration but the next most likely candidate is john kerry of the senate foreign relations committee. obama knows him from his time in the senate. he thought he would get it before hillary and it is likely to be one of those two. cheryl: before i let you go, syria. the situation continues to head downhill. will we get any more involvement? the russians are very involved. >> the russians are propping up the assad regime and are prepared to shed a lot of blood before it goes down. i don't think the president will do anything before november 6th. the rebels are having some success in the past weeks while we have been otherwise occupied the best prescription i have is more fighting and more killing as far as the eye can see. cheryl: thank you very much. great to have you this
, you know, right now we're at 35% and we have no growth. a lot of people point to the clinton years, you know what, we raised taxes and economy grew. go back and look at the in those days. the economy had everything going in its favor. right now the economy has everything going against it. raising taxes now based on lodgic we could raise it back then the two things don't jibe. we're in completely different time frame. lori: so what do you think will happen in france? you've got to predict a mass exodus. what does that mean for places like london for instance? >> we're already seeing it. people are checking out they could quickly move from france to england or switzerland, belgium or luxembourg. they're trying to avoid the tax. we see that when states raise taxes. california has been driving productive people out for years. maryland is engaging in that. wealthy people pick up and move to reduce their tax burden. we'll see that in tax going forward. lori: what about the the welfare state in france, they can't afford that? what happens to the poor people in france? >> we should be grat
. but second -- >> it reminded me of hillary clinton four years ago. i had forgotten that i thought hillary clinton won in all those debates. i picked up a lot of the same mannerisms and that was before he was in the office. and could say i'm not used to -- >> he apparently kicked john kerry's butt in all the preparation. well, i've got a plan-apparently he just wasted him. they had high expectations because he kicked john kerry's -- the other thing, john, i read a couple places that it was a drag preparing for this. the next between weeks are going to be -- when's the next debate? >> vice presidential debate is next thursday. and two weeks from now the presidential. >> next two weeks will be a complete drag. >> but one other point about the substance. because we still don't know how swing voters, the people who are still -- how they view the two side by side. it is possible in a country as polarized as ours to really get your side going and think you really kicked the other guy's behind and find that it doesn't move the needle all that much. and we have to see that. but the other thing was
clinton, then george w. bush, then barack obama. the fundamental decisions that businesses make particularly domestic businesses are driven really by what's going on with the consumer. and i think the only thing that would worry me is if i really believed that romney and ryan were going to get elected and they were going to come in and dramatically cut government spending, that would lead to a recession, and that would worry me. but i don't think they're going to get elected, but more importantly, i don't think they would do that if they did get elected. nears no republican that ever has. i think ceos are focused on what the consumer is doing, what are their customers doing. and as jim cramer said a little earlier, i think between 23 and 27 minutes of the world's focus was on this last night. the people have moved on to more substantive topics now. >> so the bottom line is that it does not matter for a domestic business who gets elected? when it comes to the fundamental -- >> i think it does matter, but i think it matters because i think barack obama is the person who is most li
